• In A Big Country

    Music & lyrics by Big Country

    I've never seen you look like this without a reason,
    Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you.
    I never took the smile away from anybody's face,
    And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child.

    In a big country, dreams stay with you,
    Like a lover's voice, fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

    I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
    But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert,
    But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime

    In a big country, dreams stay with you,
    Like a lover's voice, fires the mountainside
    Stay alive

    So take that look out of here, it doesn't fit you.
    Because it's happened doesn't mean you've been discarded
    Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming
    Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted


    I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
    But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert,
    But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime

    In a big country, dreams stay with you,
    Like a lover's voice, fires the mountainside
    Stay alive
